Greetings Fellow Cartophiles!

I have been a practising cartographer for over 30 years and would to say greetings to all those who enjoy making and looking at maps. I currently working for a government agency in Canada, and do some free-lance mapping/graphic design on the side. I am interested in map design issues related to layout elements along with type usage matters. I also collect historical maps.

I look forward to hearing from my fellow guild members through this most impressive site.

Thank you

Welcome aboard and don't be shy when it comes to sharing your knowledge in things that we don't know about...we're all mostly hobbyists so there is plenty that we don't really know :)

Welcome! What a cool job you've got. :)

@Korash: Thanks for the map link - that should be sticky somewhere. Would be cool it showed usernames and maybe linked to profiles but it's pretty cool as-is.

It's in the "Community" drop-down at the top of the thread listing on each page.
